Madison completed her first semester as a Junior and did quite well. She had a few midterms to work on and completed them ahead of schedule. This semester she is thrilled to have a new class called Fashion Merchandising and is excited to get started.
Peyton also had midterms, and true to form, finished way ahead of schedule. She is a steady worker, and I am happy to say, has embraced her old enemy Geometry! Something clicked, and she is now quite the math fan. : ) She is also discovering a new love for and interest in writing poetry. This, of course, is dear to my heart. She has completed Music and Health for the year, and is now taking Computers and Art.
Rhett also completed Music and Health for the year. He did a fantastic final project for his music class. He wrote a song and he and Madison recorded it as a duet. It was really good! He continues to excel at Science and we work through Math together. ; )
My Preschool student Flynn had a busy month as well. She completed her Math lessons and now we are concentrating on Pre-writing skills, as well as letter formation. She enjoyed Arts and Crafts every Wednesday, and our schoolroom is decorated to prove it. She also enjoys our Religion lessons on Friday where we read about and color a picture of a Saint.
Things I'm Loving...
- Having Preschool crafts in my house again
- Learning all the time...even in the kitchen while we bake
- Spending quality time with my children
- Having our days belong to us
- I got nothin' !
Here are a few pictures of January in our little classroom!
What is sweeter that school in jammies and braids?
I will never forget this picture...or the moment she realized that she wrote her name without my help, and looked up at me in amazement!
We mad a snowman with the letters of her name...
and snowflakes with lots and lots of glitter...
and two snowmen with ripped tissue paper...one for the schoolroom, and one for Daddy's office. : )
We made two happy snowmen out of paper plates and shapes...one for us, and one to send to Grandpa. : )
We read many winter stories...but this was by far her favorite. She giggled and giggled the whole way through...
We had some yummy morning snacks as well...like cinnamon sugar biscuits and crisp apple slices...
and cheese, crackers, pepperoni, and apple slices.
And that, my friends was January in our schoolroom.
Thanks for sharing it with us!
